Working mainly with printing techniques and the appropriation of existing images and texts, Willem Oorebeek questions representation and the functioning of perception in the age of image overload and spectacle. The installation entitled Getting The Books Out consists of four enlarged books in human size. Three of the four are based on existing publications by the artist, while the last is a project in progress. In line with the idea of “social sculpture”, Willem Oorebeek’s four monumental books redefine space as a discursive place.
